At their meeting on Monday, Nov. 25, the Paris Junior College Board of Regents learned of a potential reduction in textbook costs for students.
“For several years we’ve been looking for ways to reduce textbook costs for our students,” said PJC President Dr. Pam Anglin. “We’re learning that nationwide, because of the rising cost of textbooks, about 45 percent of students will go through a semester without books because they can’t afford them.
